    We had a quick visit during our recent holiday and were met by smiling, very knowledgeable and friendly staff in all areas. Highlight for me was seeing the Crested Tits drop onto a feeder but we also saw Osprey, Greater Spotted Woodpecker, Chaffinches, Great and Blue Tits and Siskin.

    A lovely well maintained little garden, next to steam train railway and opposite the Boat Inn and Restaurant.

    Great advantage point for taking photos of the steam train.

    Lots of lovely flowers and plants and it great just to sit and listen to the birds singing.

    The Gallery displays several artists, painting and photography. It also has a small but very carefully chosen selection of books.

    Fine and fun golf golf surrounded by stunning scenery. “The Boat” is a terrific experience. Certainly, there are Scottish courses more famous and more challenging but this is a golfing experience that’s totally worth a visit.

    We hired two hardtail bikes for a couple of days and the staff couldn’t have been more friendly and helpful. The bikes were in great condition and the guys gave us a map and helped us plan some routes. You are also provided with a puncture repair kit and locks. We left the bikes at the shop overnight as we did not have anywhere suitable to keep them and when we returned the next morning they had been cleaned and serviced.

    The restaurant above the shop offers stunning views out to the Cairngorms. The food and choice is very good - caters for carnivores and vegans alike.
    Well worth a visit to have a snack or meal amongst likeminded people.

    David is a great guide with heaps of knowledge of the Cairngorms en its surroundings. He teached us about local flora and fauna. Preparing the hike he takes knowledge of the weather forcast, the windspeed and your wishes for the hike. He took us to a remote and beautiful place where there were no tourists. It was awesome!

    David is very reachable, he even helped us, before met him, with our journey by recommending places to see. During the hike he took awesome pictures of us. Great memories! Besides all this he's great to talk to.

    We had an awesome day and would really like to come back someday. We definately would recommend going for a hike with David!

    Best of whishes to you David!
